Young boxer Aleksandar Mraovic has been sparring with Tyson Fury ahead of the upcoming mega-fight against Anthony Joshua.
The 24-year-old, who is nicknamed ‘The Austrian Bull’ and is about to turn professional, spoke via the MyBettingSites.co.uk blog about what fantastic condition “king of his era” Fury is in as he continues to train hard, with the fight on the cusp of being announced.
Mraovic: “The Gypsy King is ALREADY fit to go 20 rounds… his fists are like rocks, AJ cannot survive against the king of his era.”
“This man is not of this world, he’s a different animal. He’s punching like a machine, I have never felt punches like that before from anybody. When we were sparring, he even showed me a little bit how he got the power and how he works on it.
“His fists feel like rocks on you when he hits, it’s incredible. The power comes from how he punches and how he uses his weight.
“He’s in great condition – he never had a bodybuilder’s body but he moves like a real athlete.
“He did twenty rounds, no problem. We were all done after 12 rounds, we did a lot of body sparring and we were all dead. But Tyson kept on doing the heavy bag and pad work, he’s crazy. He does not know when to stop.
“His movement is amazing and he wasn’t even fully fit at the time. He doesn’t give up, that’s how we all know him. He doesn’t give up; neither in life, neither in the ring, neither in the training. He never gives up. That was his first sparring after the Deontay Wilder fight. He is sick, he is crazy good.
“He played with me but it wasn’t a serious spar, nothing serious. Right now I would have no success against him, he’s too experienced.
“I think Joshua can’t win. I don’t think Joshua can survive 12 rounds because in this era Tyson is the king, no-one can beat him.
“I am the type of fighter everyone wants to see. I want to fight and you’ll see that on my debut. I want to fight and I’m a crazy guy. I will be very entertaining for the people.”
